A 26-year-old man was shot in the leg Thursday afternoon, moments after getting kicked out of the Uptown McDonald's at 1004 West Wilson. He is in good condition.
The victim is a documented gang member, convicted felon, and drug dealer who is known to the neighborhood, according to a source.
McDonald's management barred the man from the restaurant's property due to his conduct, but he returned yesterday around 3 p.m. After a security guard asked the man to leave, he stepped outside and was shot.
Less than a month ago, the man was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm, Category I armed violence, and manufacture-delivery of cocaine in Uptown. He is free on bond.
